Burning Beard Wins at SD Beer News Awards

San Diego Beer News
March 3, 2021
By Brandon Hernández

The entire month of January, craft-beer fans and members of the brewing industry nominated their favorite beers and breweries for the first-ever San Diego Beer News Awards. Then, in February, we received hundreds and hundreds of votes on separate beer-fan and beer-industry ballots. We’ve since tallied all of the results and have teamed with San Diego brewery owners, brewers, brewery staffers and folks from the #SDBeer scene to put together a “virtual awards show” to announce the winners of the industry poll. We’ve also composed a virtual program thanks to the assistance of the media, including TV and radio stations as well as local beer podcasts, to announce the winners from the fan poll. The latter will be posted tomorrow, March 4. For now, sit back, crack a local beer and enjoy the industry show, which provides an authentic taste of the personality and creativity driving San Diego’s craft-beer culture.

Special thanks go out to the following individuals for taking part in the craft beer fan poll results show: Neda Iranpour (CBS News 8, CW Network San Diego), Raoul Martinez (FOX 5 San Diego News), Megan Parry (ABC 10 News), Danielle Stuht (91X FM / Beer for Breakfast ABV Podcast), Paul Segura (Karl Strauss Brewing / Beer for Breakfast ABV Podcast), Jeremy Pritchard (ALT 94.9 FM), Jeff Lozano (Ballast Point Brewing / Dedicated to the Crat Podcast), Cody Thompson (Beer Night in San Diego Podcast), and Brian Beagle, Esthela Davila & Abel Garcia (The Indie Beer Show Podcast)
